I need someone to speak on the differences if any between US and Imported Canon. I have seen a new in original box 70 X 200 II 2.8 IS for $1350 and $80.00 shipping and insurance. Don't use any big words.

That is a scam. There's no way a 70-200/2.8L IS II can be that cheap.

Shop at B&H, Adorama or Amazon. Don't risk your money elsewhere.

That sounds like a familiar situation...lens question
It wouldn't happen to be coming from China would it?

The company Thunder Cameras is located in Kings, NY. The lens is advertised as imported in the web site. http://www.thundercame​ras.com …?dept_id=&produ​ct_id=1065 (external link)

To date my major purchases have come from B & H. However this stuff keeps showing up and is there to tempt the devil.

My lung medicine comes from afar, is the real McCoy and saves me a thousand bucks every ninety days. It is purchased on line through Canadian Drugs. This was red flag territory until we researched by simply asking as I did here on the camera lens.

I do note that there is no positive for my camera lens question at this point. It could be that this lens advertised on this site's Classified Adds within the last two weeks slightly used for $1250 may have been questionable too.

I got into one China reproduction mess. Without the help of Photoshop and Capital One my Photoshop CS4 would have been a total loss. It took a year but Capital One finally back charged the Chinese and left me with a credit to purchase the American Photoshop CS4. In that instance even the advertising was taken word for word and image by image off the internet and used to fool a bunch of buyers. I was one of the first and helped Photoshop jump on the mess early on. Their international law department shut down the USA distributor quickly. I was told it is an on going battle 24hrs./365.

.

That's actually NOT Version II of the 70-200 f/2.8 IS, so it's not THAT great of a deal.

I'd still stick with B&H, Adorama, or check the Sell forum here at POTN.

There are price caps set on drugs by the Canadian government as well as quality controls. These things do not exist for camera gear.

Thank you gentlemen and ladies too if that is the case. Coffee and a dunker should we ever meet. I have a grandson in three sports, outstanding Pa. wrestler 105, real good music student and National Honor Roll all in his freshman year. I need that lens to keep up with him. I shall take your advice.
